In India, the idea of health food shops
has just now started taking root. There are only a half-dozen health-food
stores in the whole country. Eco-Nut takes
pride in being one of them. We are consistently trying to sell more
and more organically-grown food items.
do we want?
our motivation is a total approach to good health. Therefore, we not only

We treat them as we would a friend, a fellow traveler in the journey to
